DUBBEL'S 

DOUBLE DISCOVERY. 



ppaetieally the Family Physician of 
\ Thousands of People. 



For diseases of the Blood, Liver, Stomach, Kidneys, Skin 
and Nerves, for General Debility, and for all those conditions 
arising from impoverishment and deterioration of the blood 

BLOOD DISEASES. 

When such diseases and symptoms as Scrofula, Rheumatism, 
Sores, Boils, Tetter, Blotches, or any of the various skin diseases 
begin to show themselve^it can be safely concluded that the 
blood requires medication.- Impure blood may result from 
breathing vitiated air, from insufficient or improper food, or very 
greasy food, and from many other causes. For such diseases 
and their various complications DUBBEL'S DOUBLE DIS- 
COVERY is an unfailing remedy. \ 

LIVER DISEASES. 

The more common symptoms of Liver Disease are coated or fur- 
red tongue, metallic taste in the mouth, yellowish or spotted com- 
plexion, pains in the side, sick stomach, constipation, weakness, 
lassitude, capricious appetite, headache, gastric derangements, bil- 
iousness, indigestion, coldness of the hands and feet, jaundice, and 
numerous other conditions which vary according to the tempera- 
ment of the individual. The liver is the largest and, in some re- 
spects, the most important organ of the body. [Its functions are 
very important, and on the right or wrong performance of these 
functions hinges the health or illness of the individual. The 
remedy for disordered liver or for any of the diseases or condi- 
tions named is DUBBEL'S DOUBLE DISCOVERY, a strictly 
reliable preparation, and one which cures all this large class of 
diseases. 

CONSTIPATION. 

Constipation is often the starting point of impurity of the 
blood. The retention of waste in the system is always attended 
with unhealthful and dangerous results, because of the absorp- 
tion of the gases and other poisonous agents by the blood. Ju- 
dicious purgation is regarded by physicians of all schools as the 
correct means of removing impurities of the blood, and the uni- 
versally popular idea is the same. DUBBEL'S DOUBLE DIS- 
COVERY is one of the safest and surest purgatives that can be 
suggested. Its use can be continued until the re-establishment 
of the functional activity of the bowels, without any other than 
the most beneficial results to the whole system. It is a purely 
vegetable medicine. 



IN A WORD, 

wherever disease exists, the presumption is a most reasonable 
one that the blood is out of order, and when this is the case, 
prompt remedial measures should be adopted to prevent the* 
establishment of chronic ailments. One of the best remedies is a 
refined blood purifier, and the choicest of such is DUBBEL'S 
DOUBLE DISCOVERY, a quick relief and a sovereign cure for 
Kidney and Bladder Troubles, Liver Diseases, Stomach and Gas- 
tric Disorders, Malaria, Chills and Fever, Female Disorders, Ner- 
vous Prostration, Catarrh, Rheumatism, Gout, Neuralgia., Skin 
Diseases, Constipation, and many other ailments dependent upoti 
impurity of the blood. 

There is no better medicine than DUBBEL'S DOUBLE 
DISCOVERY. Try it and be convinced. Its use cannot be too 
strongly urged upon those who suffer from any of the complaints 
named. One tablespoonful every morning and evening for a few 
days will clear and cleanse and regulate the bowels. Price, $i.co 
for large bottle and 50 cents for half size. 



The Offer to Private Families. 

Private families who wish to order medicines for their own 
use or to divide with their friends can do so and get it at agents' 
rates, provided there is no agent in your locality. Any person 
who orders not less than two dollars' ($2.00) worth at agents' 
rates for private use, will receive free of charge one 50 cent bottle 
of " Blue Mountain Bitters." I make this special offer so moth- 
ers can find out the value of the " Bitters." The cash must ac- 
company said orders for private use.

Waynesboro, Pa., June 30, 1893. 
S. E. Dubbel: I have used different blood medicines, but 
can truthfully say that the results from the use of your Discovery 
are far more satisfactory than from the former preparations. 
Yours truly, J. A. Middower. 

[Mr. Middower is manager of the collecting department of 
the Geiser Manufacturing Co., of Waynesboro, Pa.] 



Bluff City, Tenn., July 1, 1893. 
S. E. Dubbel: Your Discovery is giving the best of satisfac- 
tion. Please send me 1 dozen Discovery; 2 dozen Red Thyme 
Pain Cure, and 1 dozen Bitters. I enclose money order to pay for 
last order of Discovery in May. Yours, C. G. Lilley. 



Brooklyn, Iowa, June 10, 1893. 
S. E. Dubbel, Dear Sir :— I have been using your Discovery, 
or " D. D. D.,'"' and find it does what you claim it to do. It cer- 
tainly contains much virtue and curative properties to build up 
the system. I have been very much relieved and benefited by 
its use, and I can recommend it as a good and healthful medicine, 
and wish you success in having people learn of its value. 

Fraternally, J. S. Snyder.

JOHNNY KLINE. 



The Tunker Preacher of the Shenandoah Valley.— 
A Story of War Time. 

[The following sketch, written by Mrs. Orra Lang- 
horne for the New England Magazine, is slightly 
inaccurate in a few points, but not misleading. The 
account of Bro. Kline's trip west, and sickness result- 
ing in the derangement of his wife's mind is true 
in substance, but the details of travel, direction, etc., 
are not strictly accurate. The Conference referred 
to was in the West instead of the South. But the 
pen picture is well executed by one who knew the 
old brother, and had an excellent opportunity of 
forming a very correct opinion of him. It is a look 
from without, and is a credit to the memory of a 
man, who, though greatly burdened by a life-long 
sorrow, still found time and opportunity to make 
himself eminently useful to the church in particular, 
and humanity in general. — J. H. M.~] 

Old Johnny Kline! As I write the 
words the venerable form of the Tunker 
preacher comes before me as I have seen 
him a thousand times in my childhood, as I 
saw him the day before he died. 

He always wore the blue homespun gar- 
ments which are the uniform of the Tunker 
brethren, made after the quaint fashion of 
their German forefathers, every piece, from 
the flax-linen shirt to the cut-away coat, 
spun and woven by the thrifty women of 
their orderly community. His shoes, tied 
with stout leather strings, were home-made, 
too, — probably he made them himself. 
Only the broad-brimmed felt hat, universal 
among the Tunkers, but purchased from 
some Gentile merchant, betrayed the slight- 
est concession to the progress of manufac- 
tures. 

The old man was of somewhat thick-set 
frame, scarcely reaching the medium 
height; his long, white hair, parted in the 
middle, fell over his shoulders in silvery 
locks, his blue eyes beamed with kindly in- 
telligence, and there was altogether about 
him an air of peace and serenity, seeming 
to lift him above the world of strife in 
which ordinary mortals dwell, irresistibly 
reminding one of the disciple " whom Jesus 



loved." There was something almost fem- 
inine in his gentle presence, and fierce in- 
deed must have been the nature, which 
coming in contact with him, did not feel his 
calm, sweet influence. 

We all knew the little romance which had 
cast its shadow over his life, and sincerely 
respected the old man for the patience with 
which his heavy burden was borne. 

When quite young, as is customary with 
his people, he married the maiden of his 
choice, the union being approved by his 
friends and neighbors as entirely suitable in 
every respect. 

The damsel was one of the simple-hearted 
girls of his religious community, near his 
own age, fair to look upon, and well en- 
dowed with worldly goods, as was also the 
young husband. 

He had already felt a call to preach, 
and annually attended the gatherings of his 
society, which met in rotation at some point 
in the various States where the Tunkers had 
made settlements, extending from the far 
Northwest to Tennessee. 

Soon after the young couple had com- 
menced their primitive housekeeping on 
the rich bottom lands lying along one of 
the creeks tributary to the Shenandoah, the 
Tunker Conference was appointed to mrt&- 
at the extreme southern settlement of the 
order, and Johnny Kline prepared to attenti 
the meeting, leaving his wife in charge of 
the household gear and farm-stock, — a posi- 
tion for which almost every German-Ameri- 
can girl is well-fitted by her early training. 

Traveling was slow work fifty years ago, 
and this journey, necessitating a long sepa- 
ration, seemed a very serious thing to the 
young wife, especially as her spouse an- 
nounced his intention of making part of his 
trip on the Mississippi steamboat, then but 
recently introduced. 

At the appointed time Johnny Kline and 
the other delegates to the Conference from 
the valley churches set out upon their

CENTENNIAL ALMANAC FOR 1894. 

MOON IS THE RUUNG PLANET THIS YEAR. 



Concerning the influence of the Moon, those of 
old, it is believed, have said, If this planet is seen 
in certain positions toward the sun, the earth and 
other planets, its power will be observed in the 
weather, in the productiveness of the seasons and in 
the special constitutions of both men and animals. 

The Year in General. This year will be more 
moist than cold and dry. 

Spring. Will be very wet and warm, with occa- 
sional frost. March will be cold throughout ; April 
rainy ; May, in the beginning, will be fine, with con- 
siderable rain, followed by severe cold ; June will 
be very pleasant, with occasional rains. 

Summer. Summer will be occasionally warm, 
4ut frequently cold. 

Fall and Winter. The beginning of this season 
will be wet, and moderately cold; afterwards quite 
cold and wet ; with December will be snow, followed 
by much rain. After the 20th it will be pretty cold 
and cloudy, till towards the 12th of January ; after- 
ward more moderate, but soon cold again, until 
about the 25th when much snow and rain will fall. 
March will be, in the beginning, rough and cold, 
then warm. During this winter sheep and bees will 
be apt to die. 

Cultivation op Summer Grain. When this 
year has a warm summer, the sowing of the summer 
crops should not be delayed, yet they should not be 
thrown into the ground too early, since the hot 
weather commences late. Barley and oats at least 
will produce moderately; also lentils, peas and 
millet, which often produce very well on good 



fields. Do not sow too late nor too early. There 
will be plenty of hay, but little second crop. 

Winter Grain. The fields of winter grain, and 
especially the rye, which if sown early in the fall 
and is rank and large, should be pastured down with 
the sheep, otherwise it will grow too rank and pro- 
duce more straw than grain. If the wheat in May 
is large and rank, it will produce little, for it grows 
too fast; this, however will not be the case on poor 
soil. 

Fall Seeding. This should be sown as early as 
possible; it will then produce little enough, for dur- 
ing the cold weather it will grow but very little, and 
if winter should come early, sheep should not be 
permitted to pasture on it, or they will crop it too 
short. All the seed should be sown deep into the 
earth, else by the plentiful floods of winter it will be 
washed out. 

Fruit. In some parts will be plenty; in others 
scarce. Acorns will be scarce. 

Hops. These will produce moderately; generally 
suffer in the spring from mildew and bail. 

Wine. There will be little vintage; grapes 
should be gathered early, as there is no hope for 
good weather. Vines should be covered early. 

Wind and Storm. In the winter there will be 
heavy winds and extraordinary rains; in the spring 
and summer there will not be a great deal of thun- 
derstorm, though some, w T hich will not do much 
injury. 

Sickness. In the fall there will be severe and 
fatal fevers, and all sorts of dangerous diseases.

southward journey, brethren from commu- 
nities along the, route from time to time 
joining the party on the way. 

At regular intervals letters reached the 
anxious young frail in her lonely home, tell- 
ing of a prosperous journey, and at last a 
missive from the absent loved one stated, 
that on a certain day near at hand Johnny 
Kline and his fellows would take the steam- 
er (the name of which was mentioned), at a 
landing place in Tennessee. 

A few days later our whole district was 
startled by the announcement that the 
steamer on which the Tunkers were to take 
passage had been blown up and all on board 
had perished. 

Close upon this evil report came reliable 
information that the prudent brethren, ever 
cautious in their dealings with men, and 
never disposed to tempt Providence by a 
display of faith amounting to assurance, 
had taken counsel together on the eve of 
entering the steamer, and decided not to 
trust the swift sailing boat and treacherous 
waters, but to pursue their way by land on 
the stout horses which had borne them safe- 
ly thus far on the journey. 

The relief of the whole country-side was 
great, for the worthy Tunkers are universal- 
ly respected and highly 'valued as citizens, 
even by those who ridicule their queer cus- 
toms and costumes; but to Johnny Kline's 
fair young bride the fatal message had come 



like the deadly blast which withers flower 
and bud. No word of cheer was henceforth 
to reach that palsied brain, no smile of hope 
was ever again to brighten the trembling 
lip, the wandering eye, of the maniac. 

When Johnny Kline, hastily recalled from 
the Conference, reached the home he had 
left so peaceful and calm, lighted by the 
presence of his first and only love, only the 
wild cry of the terrified creature, from 
whom reason had forever flown, greeted his 
return, — only the senseless chatter of insan- 
ity fell upon his ear in place of the tender 
welcome to which he had looked forward. 

The best medical advice was employed, 
every remedy known to science was tried, 
but all was in vain. The only glimmer of 
intelligence which ever repaid the loving 
care of the heart that mourned its shattered 
treasure, was a faint softening in the aspect 
of wild terror in the crazed wife, when her 
husband, unchanged in his gentle bearing, 
unwearied in his loving attention, ap- 
proached her. 

To all others, she was from the moment 
the direful tidings reached her, fierce, wild, 
uncontrollable, but never wholly so with 
him, and as soon as this became clear to 
Johnny Kline and his friends, the young 
man consecrated himself to his life-work. 

All his advisers, even the nearest rela- 
tives of his wife, urged that the patient, 
whom the most skillful physicians pro- 
nounced incurably insane, should be re- 
moved to an asylum, and closely confined 
lest she should injure herself and others. 

Johnny Kline, however, listened to no 
such counsellors, but thenceforth constitut- 
ed himself his wife's chief nurse and attend- 
ant. He employed able and skillful assist- 
ants, and made every arrangement for the 
comfort and care of the afflicted one, that 
intelligent affection could suggest. 

Johnny Kline's farm and household busi- 
ness were diligently attended to under the 
supervision of the owner by the faithful 
helpers, who never seem to be wanting in

Tunker families. In such establishments 
social distinctions are little heeded, and the 
prosperous householder shares with the 
humble assistant the toils of the day, the 
pleasures of the well-spread board, the 
comforts of the hearthstone, and the privil- 
eges of the sanctuary, never by word or 
look reminding those less favored by for- 
tune than himself that between him and 
them a great gulf lies, only to be bridged 
hy gold. 

For more than thirty years the sowing 
and reaping, the spinning and weaving, the 
milking and churning had been going on 
steadily on Johnny Kline's rich bottom 
lands. 

Still restless and excited, the maniac 
paced the apartments assigned to her, while^ 
ever and anon, wild screams and plaintive 
cries from that storm-tossed breast sounded 
in strange discordance above the hum of 
patient industry in the otherwise peaceful 
abode. 

As time went on, the Tunker preacher 
pursued the even tenor of his way, looking 
carefully to the ways of his household, 
soothing the unhappy creature, who was for 
a moment calmed into quietness by his 
voice and touch, visiting the sick and dis- 
tressed, and annually attending the Confer- 
ence of his church, whether it met amid the 
wide prairies of Illinois or the fertile lands 
of Tennessee. 

As the years passed by and his dark locks 



grew silvery white, the old man almost un- 
consciously to himself, became a great au- 
thority among his people, and a highly es- 
teemed citizen throughout the region where 
he was known. His voice was ever for 
peace, and his opinion, always gently given, 
after due consideration of the subject in 
discussion, usually determined any disputed 
question among the brethren. Gradually 
he had come to practice medicine in his 
simple fashion, relying upon herbs and 
household articles for remedies, and was 
sent for far and wide in cases of sickness 
among the Tunkers and country folk around 
him. 

When the war began, his calm face, al- 
though a trifle graver, altered little, and his 
manner displayed no excitement. His peo- 
ple were everywhere devoted unionists, but 
they were by faith non-combatants, and the 
gentle preacher urged them constantly to 
avoid taking part in any way in the national 
struggle, and advised them to submit pa- 
tiently to inevitable depredations from sol- 
diers of either side, who might be in posses- 
sion of the country. 

Johnny Kline's character was so well 
known that he had little difficulty at any 
time in obtaining permits to go and come 
as he chose from the commanders of both 
Federal and Confederate armies, simply 
giving his promise to carry no information 
of military affairs beyond the lines. 

Up to the autumn of 1864 he had never 
failed to attend the autumnal gatherings of 
his church unmolested, always riding the 
shaggy pony which had carried its gentle 
master twenty-five thousand miles in his 
journeyings, and was almost as well known 
among the Tunker settlement as the white 
locks and serene features of its owner. 

My grandfather had been through a long 
life the legal adviser of the Germans of our 
district, who as far as possible avoid litiga- 
tion and rarely appear in the courts, unless 
to transact the forms necessary to the own- 
ership and conveyance of property. My fa-

ther had inherited this law business as na- 
turally as the landed estate bequeathed to 
him by will, and had always cherished a 
strong attachment for the worthy people 
who lived among us, but were not of us, be 
ing always kindly regarded by them, and a 
welcome guest in their quiet homes. 

For Johnny Kline, whom he had known 
from his earliest years, he had ever felt re- 
spect amounting to veneration. After the 
troubles of the country began, many were 
the consultations held between my father 
and the good old man in regard to the wel- 
fare of his people, towards whom he felt a 
fatherly interest and who now seemed, from 
their neutral position, beset with trials and 
difficulties on all sides. 

It was after one of these consultations, 
that my father went to Richmond and pro- 
cured the passage of a bill releasing the 
members of the Tunker church from milita- 
ry duty on payment of a fine of five hun- 
dred dollars. He met with little opposition 
in his plan, the Confederacy at that time 
being more in need of money than of men. 

Old Johnny Kline and his pony were so 
familiar in the sight of our household, that 
it created .no surprise when one pleasant, 
sunshiny day in September, 1864, the Tun- 
ker preacher appeared at our gate and said 
he wished to see father. Papa was at home 
and cordially welcomed his old friend, 
whom he had not seen for some time. 



Thoughtless as we young folks were, we 
could but feel the contrast between this 
quiet visitor, with his quaint garments and 
gentle ways, and the noisy men of war who 
were always coming and going with their 
military trappings in those stormy days. 

The old man's countenance beamed with 
the peace that passeth understanding as he 
greeted us all by our Christian names, such 
being the custom among his people. He 
inquired kindly after the health of the fam- 
ily and gave me, as the eldest and the 
housekeeper, a package of dried golden- 
rod, saying he knew "storegoods were 
scarce now and women-folks liked -erne- 
thing to make tea of." Diving into the 
depths of his capacious pockets, he drew 
out a hank of blue flax thread, grown, spun 
and dyed on his farm, and several fine ap- 
ples — to the cultivation of which he paid 
much attention. These he offered to my 
sisters, and after a little quiet, smiling talk 
with us he said he wished to speak with fa- 
ther alone and we left them together. 
There was nothing in our visitor's manner 
to excite apprehension, and having other 
interests to occupy our attention, we 
thought no more of the old man, who re- 
mained long engaged in earnest conversa- 
tion with father, and then departed as qui- 
etly as he had come. 

Later in the day father told us Johnny 
Kline had come to warn him that the lives 
of Union men were no longer safe in that 
region and to urge him to go at once to the 
north. He had given father the names of 
several men, notorious for their evil and 
reckless lives before the war, who were said 
to have banded themselves together to 
clear the country of Unionists. Father said 
he had told the old man that he did not 
consider his life in any danger, as he be- 
lieved the fact of his having a son-in-law in 
the southern service, as well as many other 
friends and relatives in high position in the 
Confederacy, would be a safe-guard for him. 
Father said he had in turn warned his

friendly adviser against going long distanc- 
es from home alone, and urged him to great 
carefulness in all his movements. 

The old man had said he felt no anxiety 
on his own account and hoped he should 
never shrink from the call of duty, wherev- 
er the summons might lead him. 

About noon the next day, a young coun- 
tryman in Tunker dress rode hastily up to 
the door, thrust a paper into father's hand, 
and rode off as rapidly as he came. We 
were looking after his retreating form with 
some curiosity from an upper window, when 
we heard father sobbing and weeping aloud 
in the room below us. 

We all rushed down stairs and found fa- 
ther walking up and down the floor in great 
agitation, his breast heaving with sobs, as 
great tears rolled unheeded down his 
cheeks. In answer to our excited ques- 
tions, father told us that information had 
been sent him that Johnny Kline, while on 
his way to visit a sick neighbor that morn- 
ing, had been murdered in cold blood by 
four masked ruffians, who had galloped off 
as soon as their wicked work was done. A 
countryman, passing that way, had come 
upon the old man's body lying in the road, 
beside his horse, with four bullet-holes in 
his chest, his long, white locks clustered 
about the calm face, which wore its habitual 
look of heavenly peace, a faint smile resting 



upon the lips, — the eyes gently closed, as if 
in sleep. 

"A more cruel murder has not been com- 
mitted since John the Baptist was behead- 
ed," said my father, as we all sat weeping 
over the story so common in human annals 
since the days of Abel, of the innocent life 
of the holy one taken by the hands of evil 
men, who but lack the bodily form to make 
them beasts of prey. 

Loving hands carried the body of John 
Kline to his home and tenderly prepared 
him for his last resting-place. In his pock- 
ets were found permits signed by Stonewall 
Jackson and the officer then commanding 
the Federal forces in the Valley, for the old 
man to attend the meetings of his religious 
order as he had done for more than thirty 
years. Tenderly and reverently his remains 
were committed to the earth by the people 
of his community, who, too true to the 
teachings of their murdered leader to cher- 
ish thoughts of revenge for his death, pa- 
tiently and with sorrowful hearts, went 
about their accustomed tasks. 

After the funeral, Johnny Kline's will was 
opened, and it was found that, faithful to 
his life-work, he had made every possible 
arrangement for the care and comfort of his 
afflicted wife. His valuable property was 
committed to the brethren of the Tunker 
church wholly for her benefit, and explicit 
directions given that nothing on the place 
should be disturbed during her life. Care- 
ful directions were given for the manage- 
ment of the estate and minute details en- 
tered into in regard to caring for the unfor- 
tunate woman to whom his life had been 
devoted. After his wife's death, the will 
directed that the property should be equal- 
ly divided between. his own and his wife's 
relations. The old man's will w r as faithfully 
carried out by the worthy brethren, and the 
afflicted woman lived for several years after 
the close of the war, to whose bitter pas- 
sions her saintly husband had been sacri- 
ficed.

Pictures Enlarged in Crayon 

by Prof. G. E. Weaver, of Mt. Morris College, 111. All kinds of 
work done as cheap as the cheapest. Satisfaction the verdict of 
his patrons. If you have a picture you wish enlarged write at 
•once for special prices, etc. Ten years' experience. 

Although the assassins who so cruelly 
murdered the innocent old man were 
masked, there was no doubt in the commu- 
nity as to the names of the ruffians who had 
committed the brutal deed. 

Indeed, it was said that at the time they 
did not hesitate to boast of what they had 
done, professing to believe that John Kline 
had given information beyond Confederate 
lines, detrimental to the southern cause, 
then approaching its death struggle, and 
declared it a warning to other Unionists 
that a like fate awaited them. 

The murder of John Kline was reported 
at Washington with the names of the men 
believed to be the murderers, and a reward 
of a thousand dollars was at once offered 
for their apprehension. A few months later 
came the collapse of the Confederacy; and 
the assassins of John Kline, accused of 
many crimes besides his death, abhorred by 
their neighbors and every brave man con- 
nected with the cause they pretended to 
serve by dark and cowardly deeds, pursued 
by the avenger of blood, and doubtless 
haunted by the innocent and gentle form of 
the Tunker preacher, so cruelly slain, fled 
from their native place and sought to hide 



themselves among the outlaws of the fron- 
tier. It is somewhat remarkable that three 
of the ruffians engaged in the murder of 
Johnny Kline, met violent deaths, — the 
fourth wandering restlessly to and fro upon 
the earth, seeking rest and finding none. 
At last, weary and worn, he returned to his 
home in the fair valley of Virginia, no long- 
er the scene of deadly conflict, but smiling 
once more in peace and plenty, and re- 
sumed his place among his kindred. As he 
had anticipated, no effort was made by the 
peace-loving Tunkers to have him prose- 
cuted for the foul murder laid to his charge. 
Finding difficulty in securing employment 
among his. former neighbors, he finally went 
to one of the old Union men of the district, 
at that time holding office under the Gov- 
ernment, and, expressing deep regret for his 
past life, and a desire to live honestly for 
the future, he sought and obtained occupa- 
tion as a deputy-marshal in the revenue 
service, in which he was at last accounts an 
efficient officer. 

The industrious and law-abiding Tunker 
people of the Shenandoah Valley suffered 
greatly in the sorrowful days of the Civil 
War. After the death of Johnny Kline, to 
whom they looked as their guide and pro- 
tector, many of them gathered their fami- 
lies and such movables as they could take 
with them in their farm wagons, and leaving 
their well-cultivated farms and comfortable 
dwellings in the valley, sought refuge from 
the storms of war among their religious 
communities, which included many of their 
kindred in the far west. Some of them 
found homes in that distant region, but 
most of them returned after the declaration 
of peace between the divided sections, to 
their Virginia farms. Quietly and steadily 
they resumed their old-time occupations, 
re-building barn and fences, and gradually 
restoring the appearance, of thrift and com- 
fort to their desolate homesteads.

of loyal citizens, which embraced many of 
the harsh-sounding names of the German 
people of the valley, was favorably acted 



upon, and the patient Tunkers were glad- 
dened by a large amount of money, which 
came to them most opportunely. 

They had always refused to have any- 
thing to do with Confederate money, and 
avoided all transactions which could not be 
settled in gold, but showed no objection 
whatever to receiving the greenbacks of- 
fered by the Government as indemnity for 
their losses in bellum days. 

Among the Tunker communities through- 
out the Union the memory of gentle old 
Johnny Kline will ever be revered, and the 
example of his patient, faithful life will be 
held up for emulation among his people. 
To-day in all that region "Johnny Kline" is 
spoken softly as the household word — of 
one whom God has taken.

173 1 by Christopher Sower, Sen. (father of 
Bro. Sower), who emigrated from Germany 
to America in 1724, when Bro. Sower was a 
lad three years of age. The house was 
about sixty feet square, and one floor was 
so arranged with swinging board partitions, 
that the whole could be turned into one 
large apartment for religious services. In 
1738 Christopher Sower, Sen., commenced 
the publishing business, his first publication 
being an Almanac. The next year he is- 
sued the first number of his paper, a relig 
ious and secular journal, which soon became 
quite popular, and reached a very large cir- 
culation. In 1743 he printed his first Ger- 
man Bible. His son Christopher,had united 
with the Brethren church in 1737, at the age 
of sixteen, and of course assisted his father 
in conducting the publishing business. In 
1758 the senior Sower died, leaving his im- 
mense printing business to his son, who 
conducted it with remarkable ability. The 
printing establishment, bindery, etc., occu- 
pied the building seen in the rear of the res- 
idence. 

Bro. Sower was a man of fine education, 
great executive ability, and through his pa- 
per and otherwise wielded a wonderful in- 



fluence among the German reading people 
of America. The amount of books he 
printed is immense, a number of which 
were either his own production, or were by 
him translated into the German. He was 
also an elder in the church, and became 
widely known as a preacher of rar-3 ability. 

J. H. M. 
WHAT IS A MINISTER OF THE GOSPEL? 



This question addresses itself (a) to 
those who are ministers, (&) to those who 
may become ministers, and (c) to all church 
members, since all should have intelligent 
convictions upon the subject. 

We purpose looking at the minister from 
three points of view. 

1. As a man. The servants of Christ 
known as ministers are men. They are not 
angels. "I myself also am a man," said 
Peter, and Paul and Barnabas ran in among 
the people of Lystra, crying out, " We also 
are men of like passions with you." As a 
man the minister is restricted by certain 
natural limitations which are* common to 
the human race. 

Pie has a body which requires food, rai- 
ment and shelter; and he must observe the 
laws of health or pay the penalty in the 
shape of suffering, perhaps of premature 
death. He has no warrant to expect Provi- 
dence somehow to exempt him from the 
common results following a neglect of 
these. As a rule his usefulness will be pro- 
portionate to his physical force and vitality. 

The minister also has a mind which is hu- 
man and which acquires truthand imparts 
it in no other way than by the use of ordi- 
nary methods. Would he be instrumental 
in communicating knowledge successfully, 
he must be willing not only to labor long 
and hard to acquire the needed knowledge, 
but also to study carefully the nature of the 
beings to be instructed, and the most effect- 
ive methods of communicating knowledge. 

At this point become apparent some of 
the advantages which are the minister's be-

cause he is a man. I am glad ministers are 
men. As a minister I do not want to be an 
angel. No one can do my work so well as 
a man. If ministers were to preach to a 
company of fallen angels, then I should 
want to be an angel; but since they must 
preach to fallen man, I thank God that we 
have men and not angels as our ministers. 
Since ministers are men they may master 
the great secret of effectually addressing 
their fellow-men; and the minister who does 
not avail himself of this as an element of 
power, does not make the most of his op- 
portunities. 

Let the aim of every minister be to be 
the most complete man possible under the 
circumstances in which he is placed, — a 
man who keeps himself unspotted from the 
world, and yet does not go out of it, but so 
mingles and sympathizes with his fellow- 
men as to allure them heavenward. 

2. As a Christian. To be a Christian he 
must be a converted man. This qualifica- 
tion is a central, a vital one. A defect here 
is fatal to both minister and people. Think 
of a spiritually blind minister attempting 
to guide souls heavenward! 

He is to be a Christian of a high order of 
piety, " an example of the believers, in word, 
in conversation, in charity, in spirit, in faith, 
in purity." I Tim. 4: 12. As an example 
he should be in advance of his people in 
religious thought and experience. Literary 



brilliancy cannot make up for the absence 
of a devotional spirit and a pure life. 

He should also be sound in the faith. A 
man, unsettled in his religious convictions, 
ever straining for that which is new and 
strange in doctrine, has no rightful place in 
the pulpit. In purity of personal character, 
he is to " have a good report of them which 
are without," giving none offense, that the 
ministry be not blamed. Without this ac- 
knowledged purity of life his work must be 
a failure. The prominence of his position 
as leader of the flock renders defects in him 
especially conspicuous and hurtful; hence 
his outer life is expected to show a higher 
moral tone than that of the private church 
member. 

In his business relations he will do well to 
11 owe no man anything." His business 
transactions should be conducted in a 
business-like manner, and, as far as possible, 
he should avoid misunderstandings and dis- 
putes. Since he is expected to be a model 
Christian, he should be correct and consis- 
tent in his personal habits. 

He should exercise such temperance in 
eating, as to give no occasion to ascribe 
dullness in the pulpit to an overloaded 
stomach. Of course he would consider it 
an unworthy thing to come under bondage 
to any bodily appetite, as the use of tobac- 
co. Self-indulgence weakens self-respect, 
and must needs weaken the moral power of 
the minister. 

In person the minister must be neat and 
cleanly, reflecting the religion he professes 
through his temper and deportment. He 
must studiously avoid uncouth manners, 
slang phrases, idle gossip, boisterous discus- 
sions and everything that is suggestive of 
impurity. He should study to make his so- 
cial qualities such as will enable him to ex- 
ercise a governing influence in society. To 
be a real Christian gentleman should be as 
much a matter of conscience with the minis- 
ter, as to be a real Christian. Religion 
makes one courteous and kind. It never

3. As a minister. In the call to the minis- 
try, and in the acceptance of the office at 
the hands of the church, several things are 
understood. 

(a) It is understood that the one called 
accepts as Scriptural the doctrines of the 
church, and places himself under obliga- 
tions to teach and defend them. 

(b) It is also understood that he accepts 
the care of souls as a sacred trust and 
agrees to labor for their salvation. The 
salvation of souls and the upbuilding of the 
church is the one great work of every min- 
ister. 

(c) It is further understood that he will 
remain at his post in adversity as in pros- 
perity, "The good shepherd giveth his life 
for the sheep," (John 10: 11); and the faith- 
ful minister may not abandon the church in 
time of trouble. Should his views as to 
doctrine so change at any time during his 
ministry that he cannot consistently uphold 
those of the church, he should not continue 
in the office -conferred, because an essential 
condition upon which he accepted the of- 
fice, — viz., that the doctrines of the church 
are Scriptural, — has ceased to exist in his 
judgment. He has no right to continue in 
a position to the subversion of the doctrines 
he had solemnly obligated himself to de- 
fend. 



The office of the ministry is the first in 
the church, both as to character and useful- 
ness; and having souls entrusted to his care 
by Christ, to be developed for heaven, the 
minister is under obligations to use his ut- 
most endeavors for their spiritual advance- 
ment, that by and by he " may present 
every man perfect in Christ Jesus." Col. 
1: 28. 

In addition to the temptations the minis- 
ter has in common with other Christians, he 
is exposed to many which are peculiar to 
his office; hence the admonition, "Take 
heed to thyself and the doctrine." He 
should heed his mode of life, his piety, his 
opinions, and the kind of instruction he 
gives in private as well as in public. He 
should see that his instruction is the pure 
Word of God; that it is seasonable and 
adapted to the needs of the flock. He 
should also faithfully guard the flock 
against enemies. He is to do this for all 
the flock, — the poor as well as the rich, the 
young as well as the old. He must not pass 
by the poor because they are poor, or be 
afraid of the rich because they are rich. 
He should know all the individuals of his 
flock, — in their trials and temptations, their 
hopes and fears, — that as a faithful pastor 
he may devote himself to their welfare in- 
dividually. The church has been dearly 
bought, and her purity and prosperity 
should be an object of special solicitude 
with the pastor. 

He is to do all " of a ready mind," act- 
ing not under impulses from without, but 
from within. There is all the difference 
conceivable between one who does a thing 
from love and one who does it because he is 
paid for it; one who attends us when sick 
because he loves us and one who is merely 
hired to do it. So with the minister. 
Hence the additional injunction, " Not for 
filthy lucre," not for the purpose of making 
money. Money thus made would be filthy 
lucre. While faithful ministers, who devote 
all their time to the ministry, may be enti-

A Master Piece of Pen Work 

Is the " Recording Angel " Family Record, executed with a 
pen and for sale by Prof. G. E. Weaver, of Mt. Morris College, 
Mt. Morris, 111. It should be in every home. Printed on heavy 
card board, it is neat and pretty, a magnificent production of the 
artist's brain, hand and pen. A copy of this fine Record mailed 
in a heavy tube, with terms to Agents, for 50 cents. Try one, it 
will please you. 

tied to a rightful support, "for they watch 
for" the souls in their charge " as they that 
must give account " (Heb. 13: 17), and the 
church should see that they receive the 
needed support; but they must not make 
even a support the motive to labor in the 
ministry. " A constitutional love of gain," 
says one, "is a disqualification for a Chris- 
tian minister." 

Read 1 Tim. 3: 3; 6: 5-10; 2 Tim. 4: 10, 
and remember Judas Iscariot. How impor- 
tant the position occupied by the minister 
of the Gospel! What weighty responsibili- 
ties gather around him! What a sacrificing 
of self and self interests! What consecra- 
tion of soul and mind and body! Whither 
shall he go or look for help that he may be 
" pure from the blood of all men," and save 
himself and "them that hear" him? Look 
above and beyond, my Brother, both for 
help in time of need and for the reward of 
faithfulness. J. G. Royer. 

THE PREACHER'S WIFE. 



I. It is of the greatest importance that 
the preacher's wife should be truly pious, 



and thoroughly consecrated to the Lord. 
As such she will be a true, Christian wife. 
Such a character is a sunbeam in any house- 
hold, and a blessing in any community 
where she may chance to dwell. She looks 
to the divine law for her guide in every- 
thing, and in this way she so impresses the 
beholders with the idea of piety and true 
devotion, that it begets within them a desire 
for the blessings of a higher life. Such a 
wife cannot fail to be a real blessing to her 
husband, and a true helpmeet for him. 
There is no other human agency that can so 
stimulate and encourage the true minister 
of the Gospel to meet the duties and hard- 
ships of his ministerial work, as a truly con- 
secrated wife. 

2. She must love her children and her 
husband. The preacher who is made to 
feel that his wife truly loves him, and that 
she will do all in her power to care for the 
children, and to train their little feet to 
walk in wisdom's ways, bringing them up in 
the "nurture and admonition of the Lord," 
and that she constantly holds him up be- 
fore the Lord in her prayers, cannot well 
fail in his ministerial work. 

3. There is so much depending upon the 
example of the preacher's wife, that she 
cannot afford to be indifferent along that 
line. However efficient the minister might 
be in his duties as a preacher and church 
worker, if his wife's example is not what it 
should be, it greatly militates against his 
work. And not only that, but, on the other 
hand, her good example may be a great 
help to her husband, and also a stimulant to 
other sisters, to raise the standard of their 
own lives to a higher plane. 

4. She should be fully alive to, and thor- 
oughly interested in, the work to which her 
husband has been called. In this way she 
becomes a counterpart to her husband, in 
performing the duties of his calling, and 
when the duties and trials of his mission be- 
come burdensome and perplexing, it is then 
that the full worth of a devoted wife's influ-

ence is fully brought out. He then feels 
that to her he can commit the most intri- 
cate problems of his life's work, knowing 
that however far from him all others have 
retired, she will be with him, — always ready 
to help bear the burden which may have 
come upon him. The preacher who is 
blessed with such a wife, can well afford to 
adopt the language of the wise man who 
said, "A prudent wife is from the Lord." 
Prov. 19: 14. 

5. She must be one who truly loves the 
church, and is ready (if need be) to make a 
sacrifice of her own personal choice and 
pleasure, for the sake of promoting the best 
interests of the church. We all, as well as 
the preacher's wife, should remember that 
Jesus sacrificed his own personal choice for 
us, and allowed the Father's will to become 
sovereign over all. Paul says, "For even 
Christ pleased not himself." Rom. 15: 3. 
When the truly consecrated minister feels 
that he is sustained by such a wife as that, 
he can go forth with renewed energy in the 
work assigned unto him. No mountain is 
so high but that he will ascend it, and no 
valley so low but that he will descend into 
it. No road is so rough but that he will 
pass over it, to carry the great message of 
salvation to the perishing sinner. No duty 
is found in the Gospel for the minister to 
perform that seems too great for that one 
to undertake, who has the encouraging 



words and sincere prayers of a devoted 
wife. 

6. The life and character of a mother is 
so indelibly fixed upon the children, that 
she cannot afford to be indifferent as -to her 
life and language while with them. \^e 
see, even in the grown-up children, almost a 
perfect picture of what their training was 
when they were around mother's knees, and 
were caressed upon her lap. If mother's 
language was mild and gentle, her words 
being uttered in such a way as to be well 
seasoned with grace, and her manners 
smooth and graceful, the same will, in al- 
most every case, be true of her children. 
How careful, then, ought mothers to be 
while these little ones are around their feet! 
A short time ago, in reading a letter which 
a young man had written to his sister, I no- 
ticed the following: " A man never learns to 
appreciate a mother, or realize her true 
worth, till he begins to be gray-headed." 
Oh, how true! 

One of the mistakes which is made by 
loving mothers, in raising their children, is 
in placing upon their little innocent bodies 
such things as can minister to a fleshly na- 
ture only, and as early as the little prattler 
can begin to notice such tinsel, the mother 
calls its attention to those things by saying, 
"O, how nice that is," etc. This calls their 
attention to that which can only minister to 
the lust of the eye, or the pride of life. 
When, in after years, those mothers have an 
ardent desire for their children to come into 
the church, they cannot see why their chil- 
dren will cling with such tenacity to the 
vanities and gewgaws of this world. They 
fail to realize that the thorn which now 
pierces their hearts may have been planted 
by their own hands. The better thing for 
mothers to do would be to imitate a Han- 
nah of old, who "lent her son to the Lord, 
when he was a little child. 5 ' 1 Sam. 1: 28. 

When this is done by mothers now, such 
mothers fill the place of "queens," as nurs- 
ing mothers for the Lord. Isa. 49: 23.

They also become good examples to other 
.Christian mothers. They also become 
mothers in Israel, for ? they are raising up 
children for the Lord. Children so trained 
are not likely to become walking advertise- 
ments for Paris, or for the fashionable mil- 
liner here. When they train up their chil- 
dren in the " nurture and admonition of the 
Lord," they are not only mothers in Israel, 
but are great helps 
to the minister in his 
work of trying to 
bring the youth into 
the fold of Christ, 
Such wives are truly 
great helps to their 
husbands in the 
Lord's vineyard. 

The mother'swork 
with, and influence 
over, her children 
does not stop when 
those children go out 
from under the pa- 
rental roof. Some 
of our greatest men 
have been brought to 
penitence in a dis- 
tant land, and some 
were converted to 

God, who could trace their change back to 
the influence of a Christian mother's life and 
prayers. Those men, though in a distant 



land, would kneel in the darkness of the 
night to thank God for a Christian mother. 

7. Her Reward. Jesus assures us that 
they who have forsaken earthly pleasures 
for his sake, and the Gospel's, shall receive 
an abundance in the world to come. David 
says, "Weeping may endure for a night, but 
joy cometh in the morning." Ps. 30: 5. 
And again, "They that sow in tears shall 
reap in joy." Ps. 126: 5. Surely, if there is 
any one who has traveled through this 
world under adverse circumstances, it is the 
preacher's wife. May she wear a crown of 
glory in the world to come!

DAMASCUS. 



It is said that Damascus is the oldest city 
in the world, and it is also the capital of 
Syria. Babylon, Baalbek and many other 
eastern cities have been destroyed by earth-

quakes and wars, but Damascus still stands 
to be gazed at with wondering eyes. 

Its situation is pleasant, standing as it 



Brethren s Family Almanac. 



does on the banks of the Abana River, a 
clear, swift-flowing mountain stream which 
does not cease its rushing the year round. 
Canals are run from the river, through 
which water is carried to many houses, and 
many homes are made cheerful by the 
gurgling fountains which are kept running 
day and night. The water is used for irri- 
gating purposes too, and is carried far and 
wide over the country around Damascus. 
The land, which would otherwise have been 
unproductive, is made to bring forth good 
crops. The river Pharpar also irrigates 
many acres of land, and the well-watered 
country is a pleasant sight. Naaman 
thought those two rivers beautiful, and 
knew well what he was saying when asking 
the question, "Are not Abana and Pharpar, 
rivers of Damascus, better than all the wa- 
ters of Israel? may I not wash in them, and 
be clean?" How very unfavorably the riv- 
er Jordan compared with the two beautiful, 
clear mountain streams of Damascus! 

The city and its surroundings may be 
seen many miles distant, and the green 
meadows, with the winding streams, im- 
press the traveler with the beauty of the 
country, and their hearts leap for joy at the 
sight before them. 

The population of Damascus is about 
150,000; and Christians, Jews, and Mahome- 
tans are of the number. Those are called 
Christians who belong to the Greek and 
Catholic churches, as well as those who are 
Protestants. 

In the year i860 the Mahometans killed 
many thousand Christians. Since then they 
have not been so prosperous, for that was a 
fatal blow. After that time a Christian or 
Jew was not allowed to ride through the 
streets of Damascus, for very bitter were 
the feelings of a Mahometan toward them. 
These days, a Christian may walk or ride 
through their streets without molestation, 
but whenever a Mahometan comes near you 
he is heard to mumble a prayer, no doubt 
wishing at heart that he might destroy you. 



Damascus is a city alluded to many times 
in the Bible, and away back in the early 
days of Abram we read that Lot was taken 
prisoner, and when Abram heard of it he 
pursued the enemy "unto Hobat, which is 
on the left hand of Damascus. And he 
brought back all the goods, and also 
brought again his brother Lot." We know 
that " David put garrisons in Syria of Da- 
mascus, and the Syrians became servants to 
David." 

There is a street running through the cen- 
tre of the city which is called " Via Rectal 
"the street which is called straight." Ana- 
nias had a vision: "And the Lord said unto 
him, Arise, and go into the street which is 
called Straight, and inquire in the house of 
Judas for one called Saul, of Tarsus: for, be- 
hold, he prayeth." The Jews were not 
pleased with the zeal Saul manifested for 
the Master, so they planned to kill him. 
"Then the disciples took him by night, and 
let him down by the wall in a basket." 
Thus he escaped their fury and was saved 
to work longer for the beloved Master. 
We walked upon the street mentioned 
above, and the house in which he was hid 
was pointed out to us. 

The walls which enclose the city are said 
to be about three miles around, and their 
foundation many, many years old. 

The private houses, as also the hotel in 
which we stopped, are built with an outer 
court, and every one going into the court 
from the street, must go through a low door 
in the wall. Some houses have more than 
one court, in which case the master has his 
private rooms to open in the court. Here 
and there are rooms, and in these rooms 
are divans, which are seats by day, and at 
night are used as beds. Every room has a 
door, or opening, into the court, and the 
stairs which lead to the upper rooms, usual- 
ly open from the court below, running to 
the veranda or porch above. Each room 
there opens from that porch, which is sur- 
rounded by a lattice-work. There are usu-

ally fountains in the center of the courts. 
Citron and lemon trees grow near them. 

The bazaars are narrow, covered streets 
with shops on each side. A section of each 
street is devoted to different lines of goods, 
such as books, silks, shoes, saddlery, copper 
ware and many more departments, or sec- 
tions. These bazaars are known all over 
the world, and caravans go there from Bag- 
dad and Mecca, just as they did years and 
years ago. All travelers are anxious to vis- 
it the bazaars, and one never seems to tire 
of passing through them, for they are found 
extremely interesting. 

When about to purchase an article, the 
merchant seems very pleased to see you. 
Immediately a cup of coffee is presented to 
you, and after having disposed of it the 
trading begins. How wonderful is their ex- 
citement. The buyer seems horror-stricken 
at the enormous price asked by the mer- 
chant, and forthwith there is a storm of 
words and both parties seem furious. The 
would-be purchaser walks away, the mer- 
chant calls him back; a smoke is taken to- 
gether and the article in question discussed 
thoroughly. A price is finally agreed upon, 
and the purchaser departs. Sometimes 
many hours are wasted before an agreement 
is reached. One unaccustomed to anything 
of the kind feels almost sure the two are on 
the verge of a quarrel. It seems to. have 
been the same way in Solomon's time, for 
we read in Proverbs, "It is naught, it is 
naught, saith the buyer: but when he is gone 
his way, then he boasteth." 

There are many things in and around Da- 
mascus which might interest the reader, but 
the space allotted for this article has been 
consumed and I close. Lizzie Miller.

THE CHRISTIAN HOME. 



The home always has been the founda- 
tion of civilization and Christianity, and the 
one is as essential to the other as food is to 
the body. And while there are many refer- 



ences to home life in Old Bible history, we 
have its more beautiful development in the 
increasing light of the New Testament 
writings. 

In the very opening we have an interest- 
ing glance at the sanctity of the home in 
the story of Joseph and his espoused wife. 
Not understanding the honor that had been 
bestowed upon the promised partner of his 
choice, and to maintain the sacredness of 
the relation, he had decided upon a most 
thoughtful course to pursue. But as revela- 
tion came, the great mystery was ponderecl 
in their hearts and the sanctity of the home 
made inviolate. I suppose there are few 
that have pictured in their minds the un- 
usual circumstances which surrounded the 
establishing of this home. The fact of the 
affianced representing the motherhood of 
the Savior of the world so elevates her in 
the mind of the world that her home life is 
lost sight of and she is seen only as the 
mother of Jesus. Though, wonderful as 
this is, we have in the early life of the boy a 
home, though hidden, of the highest and 
most sacred order. In a few instances their 
home door is thrown open and we .get a 
glimpse of the life within. For twelve 
years as husband and wife they lived to- 
gether in a home in the town of Nazareth, — 
and what would the world not give, to have 
their history? We can touch it only from 
the results — the character of the boy. And 
is it not a key that unlocks the home living 
of a most beautiful life? 

Let a home to-day produce such a boy 
and we have the history of that home. The 
producing cannot get away from the sowing. 
And then the " sorrowing for thee " exhibits 
to a wondering world the sympathetic cord 
that binds together the elements so essen- 
tial to the home. Our picture of this home 
is a most beautiful one and a book might be 
written on the unwritten life of the son that 
was nurtured and brought up within its sa- 
cred enclosure. 

And as we turn our faces away from this 



32 



Brethren 's Family Alma?iac. 



Nazarene family, we are introduced to the 
two sisters Mary and Martha and their 
brother Lazarus in Bethany, across the hill 
from the Holy City. Though the father 
and mother had been taken away, the home 
was not broken up. The general charac- 
ter of this home may be determined from 
the fact that it was the resort of Jesus 
during his time of labor in the City of 
Jerusalem. As the days closed, to this 
place he would resort for the evening 
meal and a place for retirement during 
the night. It was during the preparation 
of one of these meals that we have the 
different characters of the two sisters so 
vividly set forth. Though thousands of 
years have elapsed since the relating of 
the events of this evening repast, we still 
have some of these blessed homes where 
kindred spirits meet and where Martha 
serves while Mary would rather sit at the 
foot of the cross and drink in the won- 
derful story. Martha did well to serve 
for so honorable a guest, but Mary did 
better at the time, in drinking deeply 
from the fountain of salvation. 

The binding cord of this home is shown 
in the peculiar death of the brother. 
And when we allow ourselves to think of 
the elements of a Christian home, and 
in such, what a brother means, we do 
not need to wonder that there was sorrow 
there. 

In the calling of the disciples we have 
outline pictures of the home life of New 
Testament people, — the Zebedeean broth- 
ers and their mother — and have we not 
such mothers to-day? Languages and forms 
may have changed, but the fatherly, moth- 
erly and brotherly ties and feelings are the 
same. And are they not only such ties and 
feelings as can emanate from the consecrat- 
ed and devoted home? Father, mother, 
brother, sister, — all words that sweetly ac- 
cord with the home idea; 

Next we are introduced to a home at 
Cana of Galilee. Perhaps a daughter of 



the sister of Mary, — at least she is a prom- 
inent guest at the place — gets married and, 
Jesus being yet a young man, and of good 
reputation, is invited. Who the minister 
and the first and second best were, we are 




THE GUARDIAN ANGEL. 

not informed. But it was a scene such as is 
found in most of the well-regulated homes, 
and how we would like to know just what 
the young man Jesus did and said during 
the evening. We are sure that he did not 
do some of the foolish things that take 
place at some of our modern weddings. It, 
no doubt, was a very pleasant home scene 
and the guests deported themselves in a 
way befitting the occasion. 



Brethren's Family Almanac.

This introduces us to the home of the 
"beloved disciple," — " and he took her to 
his own home." Who his wife was, and 
what kind of children he had, of course we 
do not know. But that she was a loving 
and devoted wife is apparent from the fact 
that he took this mother in charge without 
first consulting her. And as we, in imagi- 
nation, look into that home on the return 
after the resurrection, we see some touching 
and pathetic things indeed. Did she, the 
mother of Jesus, still continue to " ponder 
these things in her heart " ? It would seem 
a hope against hope, and yet, as he entered 
this newly found home was there not then 
still a longing faith that the cross, the 
hammer and nails could not destroy? The 
scenes that occurred in the few following 
days, were, no doubt, wonderful develop- 
ments at this home. As we think of it we 
are made to thank God for the Christian 
homes where the widowed mothers are tak- 
en in and where the blessed light of hope 
never dies out. 

These are a few ot the homes, as found in 
New Testament history, and from them we 
can catch the ideal of the homes that the 
world needs to-day. Homes we have, the 
doors are open and the softest seats re- 
served for the mother of Jesus, which means 
the Son as well. What are our homes, and 
could the Master point to us and say to the 
bereaved ones of to-day, " Behold thy moth- 
er" ? 

There is no use of us praying, " Thy king- 
dom come," unless we help make it come 
by establishing Christian homes. The 
kingdom of God can come and be only in a 
world of Christian homes, and these are the 
homes we are to make, and to make them 
we must be Christians ourselves. Not 
alone in profession on the Sabbath, but in 
our every-day life, walk and conduct in our 
homes. Jesus resorted to the home of the 
two sisters and the brother because love 
reigned there. Martha loved as much in 
serving as Mary did in entertaining and 



hearing. Her mistake was in not under- 
standing her sister, not so much a complaint 
as a reproof, and had she known as Mary 
realized she would have withheld her com- 
plaints and helped Mary to listen until ne- 
cessity would have united them in service- 
By uniting the two sisters we have just what 
the Master wants our homes to be, a loving 
service in hearing and serving. We have 
homes where it is all service, and during the 
interim we are so frozen that our appe- 
tites are lost and our digestion destroyed. 
And then there are homes where there is 
too much love, or other stuff, that is not 
satisfying, and we are just as willing to give 
the parting hand with the hope that the 
next time we may be more fortunate. Life 
is real, and while this soul must be fed, the 
physical must be attended to as well. 

The Christian home anticipates all known 
needs, and we are glad to believe that many 
such we have. Let us have more of them. 
Our wants attended to as we have them, is 
what gives joy and peace in this life, and so 
in the life to come. This is what heaven 
will be — a place where all our wants will be 
supplied. Let us try to do this in the king- 
dom now, and it will prepare us for the 
kingdom to come. H. B. Brumbaugh. 



THE BRETHREN'S MISSIONS. 



The Brethren have always had a mission- 
ary spirit, and from the beginning labored 
for the salvation of those within their reach. 
In the earlier days of the stage-coach many 
of the ministers traveled long distances in 
this way and on horseback that they might 
give the Word of Life to some isolated 
ones. Their sacrifices, trials and labors 
were equal to, if not greater, than those 
made and endured by the most zealous mis- 
sionary workers of to-day. As the facilities 
for travel and gaining information improved, 
a desire to reach further out was felt, and 
as early as 1852, a query was sent to the 
Annual Meeting, held in Elkhart County, 
Indiana, urging the preaching of the Gospel

Brethren s Family Almanac. 



" where the name of Christ is not known." 
This query was fully endorsed by the Con- 
ference, and from that time the subject was 
agitated. 

In 1S84 the present plan of the General 
Church Erection and Missionary Committee 
was adopted. In the meantime the North- 
ern District of Illinois had undertaken the 
work in Denmark and Sweden, which work 
has since been assumed by this Committee. 

WHAT HAS BEEN DONE. 

The contributions for the Home and For- 
eign Mission work stand as follows: 

1880 to 1884,.... $7,065 71 1889, $ 5,587 28 

1885, 3,806 37 1890, 7,936 32 

1886, 3,07484 1891, 7,62769 

1887, 3,877 29 1892, 10,431 77 

1888, 4,184 41 1893, 8 >3 28 °5 

Total, $61,919 73 

An Endowment Fund, which was started 
in 1887, had, on April I, 1893, reached 
$122,131.36. Adding this to the contribu- 
tions given above, and the total raised for 
spreading the Gospel through organized 
missionary effort is #184,051.09. Although 
these beginning years were years of gaining 
experience and knowledge as to the best 
methods of doing missionary work, there 
have been, under the blessings of God, 21 
churches organized, 75 meetinghouses pro- 
vided for, and hundreds received into the 
church by baptism, through the direct in- 
strumentality of this work. In Denmark 
and Sweden there is a membership of up- 
wards of 200. The traveling expenses of 
the Committee for the entire time and the 
Secretary's salary for the last three years 
amount to $935.56, or one and one-half per 
cent of the amount contributed. Thus 98^2 
cents of every dollar of the $61,919.73 has 
been used for forwarding the Gospel. 

This does not include what has been done 
by the individual districts in their own ter- 
ritory, and it cannot be had very readily at 
present. But it is gratifying to know that 
with very few exceptions each district in 
the Brotherhood has a committee appointed 



through which some very successful home 
mission work has been done. 

WHAT IS BEING DONE. 

Looking at this question from the indi- 
vidual standpoint it is very encouraging. 
Efforts are made in various ways. One sis- 
ter in very limited circumstances sews car- 
pet-rags so that she can give her 52 cents 
per year. Others • give their Sunday-egg 
money which is sometimes in suprisingly 
large amounts. One sister, whose husband 
does not particularly favor the church, qui- 
etly gives $10.00 of her butter and egg 
money. Another, an invalid for life, gives 
from $25.00 to $50.00 per year. A crippled 
brother, who earns his living as best he can, 
gives 25 cents the first day of each month. 
Another brother, during the summer of '93, 
set apart one-fifth of an acre of his truck- 
patch, the proceeds of which was for the 
Lord. He gave about $50.00 for church 
work. Quite a number are keeping an ac- 
curate account of their income from year to 
year, and give one-tenth to the different 
phases of church work. And thus instance 
after instance of individual consecration 
might be mentioned, and no doubt there are 
many others whose sacrifices possibly are 
greater, and known to none but the Record- 
ing Angel. 

But looking at the question from a Brotn- 
crhood standpoiat a different picture is 
seen, and one that may be studied with 
profit. The census of 1890 shows the total 
membership of the Brethren to be 61,393. 
Grant there has been no increase since it 
was taken, (but we know there has been). 
Then last year, ending April 1, 1893, there 
was an average of 13^2 cents per member 
given for the mission cause. But the facts 
stand this way: One hundred and ninety- 
four of the 621 congregations of the Broth- 
erhood gave $3,043.54, and the remaining 
437 congregations, as such, gave nothing. 
In addition 650 individuals gave $2,846.35, 
and the remainder of the $8,328.05 is Annual 



Brethren's Family Almanac.

Meeting surplus, estates, children's mission, 
interest, etc. This shows that a large per 
cent of the Brotherhood (much too large) 
is doing little or nothing in this great work. 
Reader, are you among that number? 

The Conference has recommended that 
each member give one cent per week, and 
who is not able to do it if he has the will? 
Yet such giving would place over four times 
as much money into the treasury of the 
Lord as has been given in any year past. 
Stop and think! How does what you give 
for the spreading of the Gospel compare 
with your expenditure for the unnecessary 
things of life, that which satisfies not the 
soul or gives health to the body? Do you 
know there is every year five times as much 
money spent in the United States for kid 
gloves as is given for the salvation of souls 
in mission work? that there is over one hun- 
dred and ten times as much money spent 
for tobacco as is given for Home and For- 
eign missions? and that those who profess 
Christ are helping the big side of these 
comparisons too much? Will Christ hold 
us guiltless? Need we expect Him, when 
he comes again, to say, You have been 
faithful stewards here on earth; come up 
higher? Would you, if you had a vineyard, 
and let it out to husbandmen, be pleased 
with the returns if they were no greater 
than the portion which is given to the Lord 
to-day? . 

WHAT REMAINS TO BE DONE? 

One of every five in the United States 
professes Christ. Other civilized countries 
have about the same proportion or less. In 
the Chinese Empire there are over four 
hundred millions of inhabitants, in India 
two hundred millions, and in Africa two 
hundred millions, only a very few of whom 
have heard the Gospel. At the close of a 
life and example, sealed with his own blood, 
Christ said, ''Go into all the world," and 
that includes every nook and corner of 
Asia, Africa, and South America, just as 



much as the United States. Christ recog- 
nized all men as descendants of Adam, all 
in sin, and for all he died on the cross. 
His commission gives no preference of ter- 
ritory, but has an imperative "GO" in it, 
and to enjoy the blessed companionship, 
promised in connection with the commis- 
sion, every follower of Christ must help to 
" Go into all the world." He has promised 
it. on no other conditions and yet no one 
can afford to be without Christ. 

what is needed to-day. 

i. More closets in which the great 
work of evangelizing the world is held up 
before God in earnest prayer. 

2. A missionary box in each one of these 
closets so that the one who enters on 
the first day of the week to pray, can give 
to God's cause in the same spirit in which 
he prays, as the Lord has prospered him. 
This kind of secret work the Lord will bless 
openly in the conversion of many souls. 

3. Ministers who preach more mission- 
ary sermons and talk more missionary sen- 
timent. 

4. Less trying to find excuses for not 
helping the work along. Excuses in Bible 
times never fared well. Even the fault- 
finding, one-talented man lost all he had, 
and Christians to-day need look for no bet- 
ter reward if they follow his example. 

5. A deeper, more constant, and earnest 
study of God's Word, which will invariably 
impart to every one the spirit of missions. 
God even challenged the Jews in Malachi's 
time to prove him and see if he would not 
open the windows of heaven and pour out 
such blessings that their storehouses could 
not contain them. He will do the same to- 
day. 

May the spirit which abode with the apos- 
tle Pauland urged him to go to the Gen- 
tiles, urge us to obey Christ's last command, 
" Go ye into all the world."

The Gospel fiessenger, 



♦ ♦ ♦ ♦ 



A religious weekly, published at $1.30 per annum, is the 
recognized organ of the German Baptist or Brethren church, and 
advocates the form of doctrine taught in the New Testament and 
pleads for a return to apostolic and primitive Christianity. It is 
a vindicator of all that Christ and the apostles have enjoined up- 
on us, and aims, a»iid the conflicting theories and discords of 
modern Christendom, to point out ground that all must concede 
to be infallibly safe.
